Kickoff to Kindergarten

OLV school would like to invite all of its incoming kindergartners to a “Kickoff to Kindergarten” week August 10-13. Sam Hanneman, one of our Pre-K teachers, will lead our kindergarten kickoff, which is free for all students attending kindergarten at OLV school in the fall.

Children will be placed in small groups that will meet for one hour each day Monday through Thursday between 8am and noon. During this time, students will brush up on some of the academic skills introduced in kindergarten and get the opportunity to meet some of their new classmates before the first day of school.

We will have procedures in place that ensure the students are practicing good hygiene and the classroom is clean and ready for each group to learn and play.  Hand washing, surface disinfecting and increased room ventilation will be some of the steps used to reduce the chance of virus exposure.  Students that are not feeling well should not attend.

If you are interested in having your child attend kickoff to kindergarten, please fill out the form by July 15th. If transportation is an issue, let us know and we would arrange for Otter Express to pick up your child at no cost to you. Specific meeting times and details will be announced once we have a roster. Feel free to contact the school office with any questions, (218)736-6661, or email
